Vandals’ Hardy out against CSU

Idaho tight end and second-leading receiver Daniel Hardy will miss Saturday's game versus Colorado State and could be sidelined even longer with a lacerated kidney, a source has confirmed. After Hardy missed practice earlier in the week, Vandals coach Robb Akey declined to elaborate on the junior's injury. 

Hardy leads Idaho (3-1) with 14 receptions, two for touchdowns, and is second on the team with 243 receiving yards. Peter Bjorvik and Kevin Small figure to see more time in passing formations with Hardy injured, but neither are as capable as Hardy as down-field threats.

Details of how long Hardy will be out are still murky, the source said. But the injury occurred when he fell on a ball after making a catch in last Saturday's game at Northern Illinois.
